How does a contractor license bond work?

The City of Winter Park (obligee) sets the contractor license bond terms. The bond is a safeguard for clients, ensuring the contractor (principal) adheres to any applicable city and state laws while performing work in the city.  

If the contractor breaks any part of the bond agreement, the surety company will initially cover any damages to other parties. These parties may include the city, state, or individual clients. The contractor is ultimately responsible for paying the surety back for any covered claims, up to the full bond amount ($5,000 or $1,000).  

To obtain your surety bond, you will pay a premium – a small percentage of the bond value. ZipBonds can issue contractor license bonds quickly, at a typical premium rate of $100.
